Right, on to this week. First I'd like to introduce you to the lovely DAWN our very welcome new design team member. Please pop by her blog and leave her some love. We're so glad to have you on board Dawn.
Also, we have decided that each month we're going to have a guest designer. That person will be chosen at the end of each month and do 4 weeks with us. For the month of April we invited CAROLINE to join us. Welcome to you too, Caroline and I hope you enjoy your time with us.

Our sponsor this week is CRAFTY EMMA'S STORE.

and Emma is giving a very generous £10 gift voucher for her online store (exc p & p). So, get those blossoms and blooms out and lets see all your fabulous flowers.

Here's what the design team did this week. We all used an Animal in the Window available from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS.








The challenge will close as always, next Saturday at 8.00pm GMT.

All the links for the Design Teams blogs are in the sidebar so please go and have a look and leave them some love. :o)

Email entries are welcome. Email using the Contact Button and they'll be popped into the post for you and can I ask you again to PLEASE, please turn off your word verification if you don't mind. It's very time consuming making comments and it really does make like easier for us without it. Thanks.

We're looking forward to seeing all your lovely spring blooms. Have fun.

This blog is related shopping. New ideas, quality designs, sensible colors, and no-nonsense prices. I want to like the bag, but something is keeping me from liking it. Unfortunate because I own so many of his bags. This is really nice blog…
